Could physiotherapy be as effective as surgery for your back pain?

A study carried out at the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh, suggests that physiotherapy could be as effective as surgery for back pain.

Researchers discovered that whether participants in the study chose physiotherapy or surgery they ultimately achieved similar reduction of pain and other symptoms after two years.This provides real food for thought considering the many positives of choosing a non-surgical route, including the 15 per cent complication rate relating to surgery, with half of those complications being life-threatening.
